Polar Express





We enjoyed watching the Polar Express in our PJ's.

Snow Day Fun


We enjoyed getting to play in the snow.  This does not happen very often in the south, so we took full advantage.

Getting ready for Christmas

Today we began making ornaments for our tree.  We also had some new Christmas activities in our stations.  One of my favorite is "stocking sounds".  After you pull the item from the stocking, you have to bingo dot the correct letter on the recording sheet.  In another station, we had to help Santa fill his empty sack. The kids took turns drawing a letter tile from the bag and recording the letter on the recording sheet.  They then chose a picture stamp that began with the same sound and stamped it on Santa's sack.

If I were a present....

To get us into the Christmas spirit, I asked each child if they could be a present what they would want to be.  We had some great answers.  Each child wrote their answer and drew a picture.

Thanksgiving Program

During November we learned how our Native American friends helped the Pilgrims when they arrived to the new land.  We had a wonderful program for our parents.  Everyone did a great job learning their part.



We also had some Native Americans visit our school.  They had a lot of great things to share.

Nutrition

We learned all about healthy food choices.  We ended the week by creating our own food pyramid.
